Hot Summer Fun!!


Spent the first week of my summer break with views like this on a high school pilgrimage trip to Northern Ireland with my church. Missing the peace and quiet of this place (and temperatures rarely above 60), but thrilled to be back in the Queen City with my kids and all of the summer fun that awaits this week. It's going to be a hot one, so I've listed lots of indoor fun in addition to outdoor events this week. Stay cool and make some summer memories!!

Local Mom Spotlight - Check out Buti Bag!


Whether you're a new mom, or a seasoned expert mom, you need to check out local Charlotte mom, Nicole William's business, Buti Bag. She offers precious products for moms of all stages. From her website: Nicole Williams has a demanding life as an on-the-go mom which calls for an equally versatile bag for the job. She wanted a stylish toiletry bag that could not only handle her diapering essentials, but continue to be useful past toddler-hood. Unable to find the perfect bag, Nicole took matters into her own hands. Need a baby gift, or a bag or two to help organize the pool bag? Make it a Buti Bag!!
